A Methodological Conundrum: Comparing Schools in Scotland and England
Marshall, Bethan; Gibbons, Simon
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v22 n2 p199-208 2015
This article considers a conundrum in research methodology; the fact that, in the main, you have to use a social science-based research methodology if you want to look at what goes on in a classroom. This article proposes an alternative arts-based research method instead based on the work of Eisner, and before him Dewey, where one can use the more traditional critical, close reading techniques that are usually associated with a degree in English. We look at a case study English lesson to illustrate and explore how this may be done.
